Old Golf Cart – Repair, Recondition or Replace?

Posted in Golf Carts

Golf carts can provide personal transportation for many years. However, like any vehicle, they will eventually begin to have problems as they get older. If you have an older golf cart that is starting to wear out, you may not be sure whether it is better to continue spending money on repairs or if it is time to consider replacement. Weighing out the pros and cons can help you decide whether you should repair issues as they arise, invest in a complete reconditioning or opt for a replacement.


Simple battery replacements or new tires are cost effective golf cart repairs that can be expected as your golf cart gets older. However, when bigger problems arise with the motor or other major systems, it may need an overhaul or be more cost effective to replace the vehicle.


If your golf cart is in good physical condition but has many miles under the hood, a reconditioning may be the best option. Talk to your local golf cart dealer about reconditioning your vehicle and weigh the cost versus replacement.


When repair or reconditioning is too expensive, replacement may be a better option. Most dealers have both new and used models to choose from for almost any budget. Many people buy golf carts and only lightly use them before they decide to upgrade or sell them back to the dealer. You can often get a lightly used golf cart for about the same price as reconditioning your old cart.

Not sure what is the best option for you? Bring in your old cart to your local dealer for a quote on repairs, reconditioning or trade-in value against a replacement.
